Description

Sarah McBrideSarah McBride, LGBT rights activist and author of Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality will speak with longtime friend Ashley Biden about the experiences described in McBride’s newly published book. McBride is largely credited with the passage of legislation in Delaware banning discrimination on the basis of gender identity in employment, housing, insurance, and public accommodations.  Ashley Biden is the Executive Director of the Delaware Center for Justice, Inc.

McBride is largely credited with the passage of legislation in Delaware banning discrimination on the basis of gender identity in employment, housing, insurance, and public accommodations. In July 2016, she became the first openly transgender person to speak at a national party convention when she gave a talk in support of Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.

“Sarah McBride's powerful memoir, Tomorrow Will Be Different, is a brave and moving story that will inspire and galvanize readers to join the urgent fight for LGBTQ rights. The energy and vigor Sarah has brought to the fight for equality is ever present in this book and she starkly defines what is at stake, and how we can do better to advocate on behalf of all people.” U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-California)
